The new 23mm and 27mm diameter sizes provide physicians with the ability to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms in a wider range of anatomies eligible for minimally invasive endovascular repair.
Gore has received CE mark for the 23mm and 27mm diameter sizes of the contralateral leg component of the Gore Excluder AAA Endoprosthesis for treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). The new diameter devices provide physicians with the ability to repair AAAs in a wider range of anatomies eligible for minimally invasive endovascular AAA repair.
“By adding new diameter options to the Gore Excluder device, patients with large iliac arteries can now be treated with fewer components. This will simplify the EVAR procedure for these patients, widen its applicability, and reduce its costs,” said Michel Makaroun, professor and chair, Division of Vascular Surgery, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, USA.
